CXR Lecture: Closing the Gender Gap in Tech

When:  May 18, 2023 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (CT)

It is no secret that technology is having a diversity crisis. Despite initiatives to diversify, technology is still perceived as a predominantly white, male, middle-class industry. But this wasn’t always the case – in 1943, computing was dominated by women. What happened? Join Antonia Forster, XR Technical Specialist, for a data-driven exploration of the gender gap: how it affects your bottom line, how AI and machine-learning reinforce bias, and how we can employ evidence-based strategies to combat it.

About the speaker: Antonia has a Masters degree in Zoology. She is a keynote speaker and self-taught programmer, working in the field of AR, VR, and haptics. She travels worldwide, speaking on inclusion and diversity in the workforce.
